Sabbath April 25, 2009
At a Sabbath School class conducted by Bro. Melvin Brown, the question was asked: What is Life?
I have just received my response.
To lack life is to lack responsiveness to G-d and his purpose or goal for you. TO lack life to fail to live up to G-d's expectations for you or to fail to live according the intent for which you were created.
The absence of life is to be active or inactivated that you are unable to accomplish your eternal purpose of having dominion over the resources of the earth.
And this is G-d's eternal purpose for you:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. (Genesis 1:27-29)
Embrace that purpose for it is the life to be lived!
